Looking at design elements in online documents

When you are deciding on your document layout, you should consider how the document will be used. Will it be used in conjunction with other software or on-screen displays, as is the Adobe Illustrator user guide? Or will it be a standalone document like the online product overview, Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy: Putting It All Together. Will your document be viewed on a traditional computer monitor or on the newer eBook reading devices? Are your users sophisticated computer users or are they likely to be new to computer systems? These factors and more affect your design decisions.

Looking at the online Adobe Illustrator user guide

In Lesson 5, “Putting Documents Online,” you looked at an online version of the Illustrator user guide. This user guide uses a tall and narrow page size to allow the user to view the user guide next to an open Adobe Illustrator application window. This format was chosen to let users conveniently look up reference information without closing their illustration window. Take a few minutes to review the features that made this online document easier to use than its electronic print-on-demand equivalent.
